Elevator Pitch: A reunion for the class of ’99 has been arranged and so the guys, Jim (Jason Biggs) with his wife Michelle (Alyson Hannigan), Oz (Chris Klein), Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas) Stifler (Seann William Scott) and Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) collect at East Great Falls where they carouse in a variety of ways, reconnecting with their college girlfriends, not always in a good way and in some cases alienating their current partners. Jim and Michelle are suffering from a sexual famine and  he becomes the subject of seductive advances of the young woman who lives next door to his dad. Oz is now a TV commentator and so is constantly subject to approaches from girls and Stifler is his old objectionable self.

Content: Well, here we go: There is defecation, masturbation, a lot of sex with thrusting but without nudity, a number of oral sex events, a bit of surprisingly in your face female nudity, S&M clothing and one view of a penis squashed behind a transparent pot lid. There is also a great deal of drinking with drunkenness resulting and some imbibing of drugs and smoking of marijuana. The guys spend most of their time in bars or at parties and are sometimes seen unconscious. The former female classmates usually act provocatively the current wives and girlfriends are sometimes distressed.

A View: You should know what you’re getting as soon as you see the title. The critics were divided about it, but I thought they had made a bit more of an effort to be actually entertaining as well as grossing out. Even though I could not remember who any of the guys or girls had been thirteen years earlier it still rolled along quite well, if anything trailing away towards the end. So maybe a watch for nothing, but not with your granny.
